    Sometime i spray the ubik on the wfp brush to get stubborn dirts off for high windows and frames and for 1st clean jobs which got me thinking.

    Is it possible to fit a lance spary at the end of the harris pole and fit a trigger handle at the bottom of the harris pole for spraying ubik at high windows rather than spraying onto the wfp brush.

    Sorry Dave i forgot about that
    No cc either
    He uses a pump up sprayer with the lance attached to the end
    The tap is at the top so when it is put back in the van it doesn't leak everywhere
    If it was me i would have a tap at both ends so it is always sealed and full when not in use so no need to pump a load through the hose before you can use it

    I attached tubeing to a old pole and a pump up sprayer. Now use a trolley for spraying. If you fitted a connector to pump up sprayer could you not connect water fed pole directly to sprayer. Never thought to try that before.
